Filming in Zambia

Videos on this website have been made with the help of youngsters living in and around SOS Children’s Villages, to create this evolving ‘Our Africa’ educational resource.

Filming workshop

On this page, we present a short film the children produced by themselves. This is Africa through their eyes.

SOS Children has been working in Zambia since 1999 when the first Village was built in Lusaka. Today, there are another two Children’s Villages in Zambia. Find out more about SOS Children in Zambia.

Here is the film made by the children:

Our Story

Zambia - Children's film

‘Our Story’ is about a young girl without a mother or father. She comes to live at an SOS Children’s Village. Her story gives an idea what life is like for her and the other children at the village in Lusaka. Doing chores, going to school and playing games are all part of everyday life.
